I seriously admire your bold choice of paint colors - I loved them all, especially the lavender in the dining room. Well done...:)

I thought I'd never be able to grow a fiddle leaf tree, given all the information out there - lighting, watering, being finicky. I took my chances and bought two nice one-trunk trees and put them in my living room with pretty constant indirect northern light throughout the day. After much moving around, I finally found out that what really needs to be 'spot on' with these guys to do well is truly...lighting and water. In just the perfect way. That's what makes them 'finicky', I guess. They have found the perfect spot and they are growing 1 to 2 leaves a week and I let the pot dry out and water about every 2 weeks. Plus I have added a little bit of Miracle Gro plant food to the water now that it's spring. I would remove these brown leaves if they are towards the bottom of the trunk near the dirt anyway as they are old. However, if these are towards the top, you might need to just suck it up until you get some more new growth after you've futzed around and found the right lighting situation. I'm telling you, I love my two guys - I've named them 'Orla' and 'Kiely' (they look like her logo) and if I could learn how to notch them to make them bushier, that'd be great but I'm afraid I'd hack up a perfectly good plant. Anyway, what I want to say is that it looks like perhaps your plant looks like it suffered from too much watering and improper lighting. Hope this helps.
